Mega puffy feet!!

Postby Lyssie » Sat Jul 26, 2014 11:47 pm

Especially in this weather too... Very uncomfortable. Right about now I think I'll treat myself to a cold foot bath, haha. Keeping them up too!

Any suggestions?

Lyssie :) xoxo

Oh dear Lyssie. I used to really suffer from swollen feet and ankles. You need to pop in on your GP as there are many reasons for swollen feet and ankles. My GP told me it was oedema due to dehydration. It was really really bad last time and very sore, felt as though my skin was going to split open. GP gave me a recipe for a rehydration drink to make up at home and I had to get through about half a litre per hour throughout the day, and the next day if I needed to. Also to get my feet up above heart height. Had a very relaxing couple of days on the sofa with my feet up on two pillows and sipping my drink. You'll find various recipes online but below is the one I used:

Six level teaspoons of Sugar
1/2 level teaspoon of Salt
1/2 level teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda (optional)
One Litre of water
Your favourite cordial to taste.

Oh, and before I go.... you need to keep well hydrated in future. I haven't had an episode since I took that remedy and invested in a water filter jug, which is constantly kept topped up. Just about every time I go into the kitchen I have a glass of water.

Hope you feel more comfortable soon.

I've been getting puffy feet and toes. My rheumy nurse said it isnt fibro but my arthritis x

Oh wow. Thank you LibbyWick that's so helpful. I'm seeing my GP soon so I'll also bring it up then! I'll see if we have those to make that up :)

Ohh okay Theresa, do you mean rheumatoid arthritis? As I haven't but I have osteoarthritis and bone spurs... Xx

Lyssie, I feel for you.

I get swollen hands and ankles when I am dehydrated or from the OA. As Libby suggested though, you should see your GP, if you get it a lot. There are many reasons for swelling.

I have never suffered with swollen feet or ankles but i am newly diagnosed and they have put me on Gabapentin and I am sure it is these that are dsoing it, I feel like im walking around in a lead suit too .......

AM talking to the docs tomorrow about it hopefully this is the reason as I am diabetic and they are making me sick too and loss of apetite, my sugars are up by 3 points which is disasterous as it has taken me 4 years to get it down ;(

My feet and ankles are swollen. I had wondered if it was Pregabilan. But really I put it down to the heat. Just another thing to add to my list for the doc as to why I would like to try something else! I had to invest in a few pairs of new sandals because the ones I have a really really digging in because of the swelling!
